Bruno Viana: Flamengo make €7.5m bid for Lazio target but Mendes blocks
According to what has been reported in the Brazilian press, Flamengo have made an offer of €7.5m for Braga defender Bruno Viana. Bruno Viana has been linked strongly with a move to Lazio in recent weeks and it has been suggested that Viana’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has blocked the deal; as he views Lazio as the preferred destination.
Mendes must first help another of his clients, Lazio defender Wallace, find a move elsewhere; the Brazilian being considered not a part of Simone Inzaghi’s plans next season and, in fact, the Biancocelesti wish to offload him if they can fetch a suitable price.
